Treasure Island Music Festival

Produced by Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment, Treasure Island Music Festival has grown to become one of the west coast’s most-loved festivals capping out the festival season, not just for the fans who attend, but for the artists themselves. With no overlapping sets, Bay Area cuisine, and the gorgeous, panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay serving as the festival’s backdrop, Treasure Island Music Festival is like no other festival experience in the U.S. When the festival began in 2007, it quickly became one of the premiere music events of the fall concert season thanks to its consistently fresh and exciting lineups, selling out year after year. The festival has played host to a number of music’s most incredible names, including LCD Soundsystem, Death Cab For Cutie, The xx, The Flaming Lips, Deadmau5, She & Him, MGMT, Girl Talk, Vampire Weekend, Belle & Sebastian, M.I.A., Die Antwoord, Modest Mouse, The Raconteurs, Beach House, and more.
